ST NICHOLAS Best of All Magazines For Young Folks

Some — only some-Fea

tures of 1912. CROFTON CHUMS

And the thirty-ninth volume, which begins with the November number, will be better than ever-if such a thing be possible. During the next six months an important serial, or series of articles, will begin with every number' from November to April. Of course, ST. NICHOLAS is, first of all, American in its main contents, character, and ideals. It is made for and addressed to the great army of active, bright-minded boys and girls, and dominated by the American spirit, but the stories and articles have a world-wide appeal, and, wherever American or English may wander or the English language is spoken, Sr. NICHOLAS is known and loved. WHEN IT COMES TO BRIGHTNESS

AND FUN-JUST-FOR-FUN'S-SAKE ask any reader of St. NICHOLAS, young or old, whether he or she knows of any cleverer or better fun than the magazine constantly provides, both in text and picture, in its countless rhymes and jingles, and in its comical drawings. The inimitable OLIVER HERFORD will be represented in the new volume by several delicious bits of verse illustrated by himself with equally amusing pictures, and CAROLYN WELLS, MALCOLM DOUGLAS, and other well-known wits and versifiers will contribute rollicking rhymes that will bring mirth and smiles in plenty to every ST. NICHOLAS household. Of the multitude of SHORT STORIES, SPECIAL ARTICLES, FUNNY RHYMES AND PICTURES, and other single attractions awaiting appearance in the next volume of ST. NICHOLAS, only the merest hint can be given as yet. Those invaluable departments
